Now that it’s officially the time of year in Australia where everyone’s in the mood to go out and enjoy a few cocktails and make the most of balmy summer nights I’m once again drawn to this Rebecca Vallance jumpsuit. I took it with me to Paris during my last holiday and loved that it felt so right for evenings out, making the most of the gorgeous weather. I’d usually associate gold lamé with more of a party look but the style of the jumpsuit, with its culotte style leg, square neckline and sweet waist tie keep it looking polished without losing any of its glam factor. The colour is so gorgeous that to continue the gilded theme I opted for my gold Gucci heels and favourite Eddie Borgo choker. To punctuate the head-to-toe metallic I went with a little black Dior bag with chain strap to carry all my essentials and leave my hands-free should I wish to enjoy a drink or two!
Unexpected silhouettes and finishes are one of the things I always look for in a dress which is why I particularly loved the asymmetrical finish of this moss green Christopher Esber dress. It gave it a unique touch. I don’t often wear this shade either so it was nice to do something different. Accessories are always a key component to any outfit and it’s often what brings cohesion to the overall look, so with that in mind I thought as the dress is quite soft and feminine I wanted to team it with my cut-out Givenchy ankle boots to ground the look and give it some edge. A dark bag would have blended in a little too much for this particular look so I opted for a Givenchy Antigona in a nude shade to provide some contrast. My Ellery sunglasses and Eddie Borgo choker add a sense of modern sophistication to the outfit.

A little black dress is a mainstay in my wardrobe for its versatility and practicality but rest assured an LBD doesn’t have to be boring. I loved this TOME dress because of its one-shoulder neckline and also its plissé fabric. The pleating elevates the look and gives it touch of understated elegance. I think there’s no better pairing than a classic black evening dress and striking gold accessories and this Eddie Borgo choker gives an otherwise demure look a slightly tough edge. I think the outfit needed an strong anchor point – something a little more solid than stilettos – so I chose to go with a pair of Givenchy cut-out ankle boots instead. A black clutch would have have been a little too match-matchy so I opted for a white Chanel clutch to add a pop of colour to the look. Further proof that you can never go wrong with a little black dress.
